A Manual for Developing Reasonable, Objective, Nondiscriminatory Standards for Evaluating Teacher Performance.
DeVaughn, J. Everette
This manual outlines the procedures and processes to be followed in evaluating professional growth and service of teacher personnel. Although a comprehensive evaluation should include all professional personnel, the emphasis is on beginning teachers (those in their initial year in the system) and those who, according to the principal, clearly need assistance. The procedural steps are discussed under the following headings: orientation, initial assessment, teachers in continuing service, possible exemption from interim evaluation, coordination and continued supervision, and interim evaluation. Eight assumptions are listed 1) educational goals should be expressed in student-behavior terms, 2) objectives should be established in the affective domain, 3) the psychomotor domain should be given attention at the early childhood levels, 4) the teacher's behavior is modified to involve the learners in setting objectives and determining levels of participation, 5) the approach to student evaluation is behavioral, 6) the teacher must be evaluated in behavioral terms, 7) the supervisor must be aware of the behavioral modifications expected, and 8) teachers should be freed from guilt feelings concerning their performance. The evaluation instruments and forms used in evaluating individual teacher tasks are included. (MBM)
